Guáman Poma was an Incan man who was born in 1535, just after the Spanish conquered the Incan empire. He wrote a 1,189 page book entitled El Primer Nueva Corónica y Buen Gobierno, or “The First New Chronicle and Good Government.” The book was intended for King Philip II of Spain to explain to him the history of Andean civilization and to show the king how the Spanish colonists had damaged the Inca way of life. In addition to text, Guáman Poma illustrated the book with 398 original drawings depicting Inca life and history, and Spanish cruelty. The images below come from El Primer Nueva Corónica y Buen Gobierno.
